Ernest Hemingway is inspiration, not author, of the Hemingway Daiquiri, aka Papa Doble. His request for a Daiquiri made with half the sugar and double the booze created an unbalanced drink: one that bartenders couldn't help but right through the eventual addition of maraschino liqueur and grapefruit juice. To reinstate some of Hemingway's influence, this variation of the standard recipe isn't served up or frozen, as the earliest Daiquiris were served over crushed ice.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces white rum
  • 3/4 ounce key lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 ounce maraschino liqueur
  • 2 tbsp simple syrup
  • Garnish: lime wheel

Steps

  1. Add all ingredients into a blender with ice and pulse the blender until the drink has a slushy consistency.

  2. Pour into glass.

  3. Garnish with a lime wheel.
